'...and, inevitably, as the chronometers count down the seconds to midnight and the windows of the station's bar grow dark as the planet blocks out the light of the star, the old timers sit nearer together and begin to trade tales of 'The Phantom Cobra'. Some claim that it's the ghost of Commander Peter Jameson, reported lost at the end of the last Thargoid War, others that it is simply a manifestation of all those lost souls who were trapped in the trackless depths of interstellar space. One common story is the trail of bad luck and hideous deaths that follow in the wake of the ship's sightings...'


This OXP introduces the small possibility to encounter a ghost ship, the tale of which is sung in shady bars (and in the news, if they have nothing else to report). After an introduction, which will eventually be triggered if you just fly around a little, you can meet the ship itself. Find out whether the tales and stories contain a grain of truth...

Featured Ships

Griff's Wireframe Cobra triggered and inspired this OXP. It's the sole ship contained in it.
